“Oh my word, I had so much fun today and I absolutely love the images. Thanks for bringing my confidence out!” 

- Rachel

Enneagram 3 with a definite wing 2, total book nerd who swears I loved a bold lip before it was cool.

Let's do this together, beautifully and fiercely.

It's simple. I want our time together to be all about you. I’m driven to make your vision for our time together come to life! I’m ALL in during our time together; I don’t just show up with a camera - point and shoot. It will be sooo much more than that.
